I’m in very, very good company: meet Robin Hordon

The gentleman whom I want to introduce next has an extraordinary amount of knowledge about airplane safety and hijacking protocols. Why? It was his job to know. he was a Former FAA Air Traffic Controller at the Boston Air Route Traffic Control Center, located in Nashua, NH, 1970 – 1981.  Former Certified Commercial Pilot.  Former Certified Flight Instructor and Certified Ground Instructor. Meet Robin Hordon

He worked at on the air plane corridor that was used by the “hijacked” planes and was intimately familiar with that area of US airspace and he was specially trained to deal with hijackings and terror drills.

This is what Robin has to say about it himself: “Statement to this website 4/10/07: “I knew within

hours of the attacks on 9/11/2001 that it was an inside job.  Based on my 11-year experience as an FAA Air Traffic Controller in the busy Northeast corridor, including hundreds of hours of training, briefings, air refuelings, low altitude bombing drills, being part of huge military exercises, daily military training exercises, interacting on a routine basis directly with NORAD radar personnel, and based on my own direct experience dealing with in-flight emergency situations, including two instances of hijacked commercial airliners, I state unequivocally;  There is absolutely no way that four large commercial airliners could have flown around off course for 30 to 60 minutes on 9/11 without being intercepted and shot completely out of the sky by our jet fighters unless very highly placed people in our government and our military wanted it to happen.

It is important for people to understand that scrambling jet fighters to intercept aircraft showing the signs of experiencing “IN-FLIGHT EMERGENCIES” such as going off course without authorization, losing a transponder signal and/or losing radio contact is a common and routine task executed jointly between the FAA and NORAD controllers. The entire “national defense-first responder” intercept system has many highly-trained civilian and military personnel who are committed and well-trained to this task.  FAA and NORAD continuously monitor our skies and fighter planes and pilots are on the ready 24/7 to handle these situations.  Jet fighters typically intercept any suspect plane over the United States within 10 – 15 minutes of notification of a problem.

Watch him speak.

If a man like Robin Hordon has this to say about the events of 911 and what should have happened I tend to believe him. Don’t you?
